Things aren’t always as dark as they seem when it comes to store reports. It often depends on where you live or how fast your store shifts/turns over merchandise. So, you can have a very disparate experience than other collectors across the nation. Here is one of my Target stores (Plymouth, MN) on any typical day.
Today, Disney Interactive introduced a new set of six playable limited edition Star Wars™ Light FX character figures for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition. The collectible figures have Lightsabers™ that light up when placed onto the Disney Infinity Base and include Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader from Star Wars™ Rise Against the Empire, Anakin Skywalker, Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars™ Twilight of the Republic and Kanan Jarrus from Star Wars Rebels™.
Click on through for the details on where each are available and slight sculpt differences from the original releases.
If you’re out and about today, Target has a Buy 2, Get 1 sale going on today only – including Star Wars, TMNT, Transformers, Barbie, and more. Good luck!
Target is now starting to add Super Awesome Me 3D Figure stations* to select stores. Reader Jeff C. sends in a few images of the station showing the Star Wars options available: Stormtrooper, Male Jedi and Female Jedi (coming soon) for $59.99 each. Click on through for a closer look.
*To clarify, these stations do not print your figure while you wait. Photos are taken and the order is placed in store, the figure arrives shipped to your address at a later date.
After hitting several Walmart and Target stores on my travels this weekend, I managed to see a few new products hitting shelves or at least arriving in stores.
